Michael Shane and Kazarian were a professional wrestling tag team in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling formed by Matt Fonger (then known as "Michael Fonger") and Mikhail Schmalzried (usually known just by his last name, "Mikhail"), and managed by Hanna Hutin.

Although the two were largely a failure in the tag team circuit, they did have the distinction of becoming the first two wrestlers to achieve a tie in an Ultimate X match, thus both holding the TNA X Division Championship at the same time.
